* SophiscatedAsHell: A master of this. Catullus's love poems are beautiful, describing kisses and lovemaking in carefully crafted wordplay and poetry. And then you flip to Catullus 16 where the first line is "one of the filthiest expressions ever written in Latin"

Gaius Valerius Catullus was a Roman poet who lived during TheRomanRepublic. His poetry moved away from the [[AncientGreece ancient Greek]] epics about gods and heroes to something closer to everyday life. His poetry has been and still is greatly admired thoughout the ages and influenced poets such as Creator/{{Ovid}}, Creator/{{Virgil}} and Creator/ChristopherMarlowe. Unfortunately, his most famous poem nowadays is ''Catullus 16'', which has been censored for centuries because it describes some unpleasant situations.
